Stop Treading Water: What Civil Society can do to get Water Governance in South Africa Back on Track

Stop Treading Water: What Civil Society can do to get Water Governance in South Africa Back on Track

March 2012

In November 2011, with the support of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), the Centre for Environmental Rights (CER) hosted a gathering of civil society representatives and key experts in water governance, whose inputs were the primary source of this report. The report identifies some of the most pressing challenges for water governance, and makes recommendations on how civil society can become involved in addressing these.
